Happy New Year

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas? Ours was lovely-but there seemed a very long gap between christmas and new year this time. It will be nice to get back into a routine again next week-but for now I'm sneaking a few minutes while Claudie naps to make a start on January's cards

This one uses the new Caardvarks template (I hope I'm spelling it right!) I really wanted to use my new stamps but I couldn't make them work with the template

so I made this card too so I could play with them! No they weren't a christmas present, I treated myself just before christmas instead.

Have you made any resolutions? I'm trying not to-just the usual plans to lose weight, be calmer and more patient and find a little more "me" time (can anyone fix it so I have 30hr days please?) But I am trying to do some more sewing now too.
I had a lovely batch of fabric for christmas to make Claudie a quilt, and some clothes. I've nearly finished the first outfit so will photograph it soon.

Thanks for stopping by

Very pretty! Love the flowers! I was looking at your photo and you look like you'd be a lot of fun to stamp with!

Nice cards! No wonder you wanted to stamp with those stamps...fun! I agree with the previous poster...you look and sound like you'd be fun to stamp with...too bad there's an ocean between us!! Good luck on your non-New Year's resolutions!!!
